BEIJING, June 16 -- A series of China-made planes and missiles have gone on display at this year's Paris Air Show.

The air show comes amid tough times for the recession-hit airline industry and in light of unanswered questions over the crashed Air France jetliner.

China's latest L-15 jet trainer and air-to-air missiles are among the exhibits displayed by the Aviation Industry Corporation of China, the country's major airline manufacturer.

The 48th Paris Air Show opened Monday at Le Bourget Airport, north of Paris. It will last until Sunday. The century-old exhibition is one of the most influential air shows in the world.
